Dear CoPiloters, after going through your feedback and spending months in intensive app development, we are happy to say that CoPilot 9.5 has arrived! We have added “Motion Lock” to help minimize distracted driving, a refreshed user interface, iOS 7 compatibility, restyled app icons, and plenty of other improvements we hope you’ll enjoy!
CoPilot v9.5 is available immediately as a free update for existing Android users. An iOS and Windows Phone 8 version will be available shortly.
New Motion Lock for safe, hands free driving
The new “Motion Lock” feature enables you to choose the minimum travel speed at which the map becomes locked for safer, hands free driving. Speeds can be set at 5, 10, 15 or 20 miles per hour in “Settings.” You can decide whether you want to use it or not (fully optional!), but this new feature helps you to stay focused on the road while CoPilot directs you to your destination.
Restyled and refreshed UI
CoPilot v9.5 also includes a restyled flat UI design and refreshed app icons for a clearer, simpler user experience. Hope you like it!
iOS 7 compatibility
The app is now also fully compatible with iOS 7.
Additional CoPilot enhancements include:
- Improved in-app search to more easily find places near a destination
- Highway exit numbers are now displayed on the map, giving you clearer guidance
- New app icon
- 2 striking new map guidance styles
- Android: Pioneer NavGate HUD Connector (in-app purchase – only available in Europe & Premium)
- And finally, plenty of bug fixes and improvements based on your feedback (thanks for that, keep it coming!)
You may also notice we’ve dropped LIVE from our name. We want to make sure you understand it doesn’t mean we are no longer offering CoPilot’s connected services in our Premium apps. We think it better reflects what we are all about: a dependable offline CoPilot that will get you everywhere you need to go.
Got great ideas or think we could improve? Please do keep us up to date and help us improve the app in our customer forum: http://forum.copilotlive.com/copilotlive
Looking forward to hearing from you! Until next time … safe travels!
